For lancets that COR has sent you, follow this simple how to video.
If you have purchased your own lancets, we always recommend that you follow the directions included in the lancing device or disposable lancets that you purchased.
Here are some additional tips that we have found useful:
- Use the side of your finger, where there is generally the most blood flow. Avoid the tip and pad of the finger - that can be painful.
- Warm up your hands by rubbing them together or washing with warm water and soap. That will help increase blood flow.
- Experiment to find your “sweet spot”. We’ve found that everyone has a unique sampling routine that works best for them.
